FANTASTIC TURNOUT FOR BAZAAR CHIC 2015

Posted on Updated on

The fourth Bazaar Chic 2015 took place on a beautiful Saturday, on 9 May 2015!

Despite the slight drizzle in the morning, Bazaar Chic witnessed a fantastic turnout of customers both regular and new who came to shop, eat and drink from the eclectic mix of stalls offering jewellery, vintage clothing, scented soaps and oils, books, handmade canvas bags and 3D printed sculptures. Throughout the day, radio announcers from Capital FM Malaysia entertained everyone with music and witty commentary

One of the ‘must visit’ charity bazaars in KL, Bazaar Chic by Badan Warisan Malaysia is known for the high quality of items of mint condition pre-loved designer labels, shoes, bags, artwork, jewellery and home decorations.

This year, in addition to the stalls and vendors, the Bazaar Chic hosted a ‘Brocante Room’- a special section selling new and used high-end collectibles. Some of these heirlooms include crystal ware, china, accessories, objets d’art and home furnishings.

Thank you to all our friends, members, stall vendors, media partners and food operators for supporting this event! And a very special thanks to all our friends of heritage and the Bazaar Committee who volunteered for the past several months in helping us put this event together!

OUR HERITAGE HAS NO SECOND CHANCE

Image Posted on Updated on

THE STORY OF 20 PYKETT AVENUE

In 2011, Malaysian heritage celebrated a victory when the Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) very courageously exercised their discretionary powers by ordering Tetuan Klassik Tropika Development Sdn. Bhd. to rebuild the iconic double-storey, Anglo-Indian Palladian mansion at 20 Pykett Avenue owned by the late Dato Khaw Bian Cheng. Dato Khaw was the grandson of the Penang- based magnate Khaw Sim Bee (1857-1913), a former Governor of Phuket.
